GlobalGiving, which calls itself the largest global crowdfunding community, has a goal of raising $2 million for its Harvey relief fund. Funds will be used first for immediate needs of food, water and shelter and then transition to long-term recovery efforts.
United Way of Greater Houston has launched a relief fund for storm-related needs and recovery. The organization says it already maintains a disaster relief fund but anticipates the needs of Harvey will far exceed those existing resources.
GoFundMe, the social fundraising site, has created a landing page that gathers the campaigns on its platform related to Harvey.
The Salvation Army says it is providing food and water to first responders and preparing for massive feeding efforts for residents.
Donations to support the relief work of The Salvation Army can be made online at www.helpsalvationarmy.org, by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY, by texting STORM to 51555, or by checks designated “Hurricane Harvey” can be mailed to PO BOX 1959, Atlanta, GA 30301
